    1. City of GreencastleFlood Protection Plan Presented by, United Geotech, LTD

    2. Introduction • Team Overview • Project Overview • Design Requirements • Project Approach • Final Design • Questions

    3. Team Overview • Sarah Bireley– Project Manager • Amee Wicks – Project Engineer • Brad Pickering – Project Engineer • Troy Cunat – Project Engineer

    4. Project Overview • Greencastle Water Treatment Plant • Located in Greencastle, Indiana south of Big Walnut Creek • Six wells provide 4,000 gpm peak • Serves population of 10,000 • Site subject to flooding • Located in the flood plain • Rains on Labor Day flooded site

    5. Project Overview (cont.) Big Walnut Creek Well field Lagoon Filter Facility US-231

    6. Project Overview (cont.) Taken September 16, 2003 Taken September 2, 2003

    7. Design Requirements • Confirm finished floor elevation of filter facility • Confirm base flood elevation • Investigate flood protection options • Investigate security options • Deliverables • Proposal • Progress report • Final report

    8. Project Approach • Site assessment • Codes and regulations • Research design options • Flood protection • Security • Choose final design • Complete final design

    9. Site Assessment • Topographic map • Finished floor elevation = 688.54 feet (MSL) Big Walnut Creek Lagoon Filter Facility

    10. Site Assessment (cont.) • Watershed area obtained • 216 mi2 • Determined base flood elevation • Obtained Big Walnut Creek topographic map • 100-year flow determined • Q = 21,400 cfs • Maximum flows used in HEC-RAS to determine base flood elevation • 690.0 feet (MSL)

    11. Site Assessment (cont.)

    12. Site Assessment (cont.) Finished floor elevation Low head dam

    13. Codes and Regulations • Cannot raise base flood elevation more than 0.15 feet • Water tower must be enclosed in fence • Maximum levee side slope of 1:2.5 • No levee construction restrictions

    14. Design Options • Flood control options Levee under construction Floodwall under construction

    15. Design Options (cont.) • Flood control options (cont.) Dry floodproofing Elevated structure

    16. Design Options (cont.) • Decision based on four criteria • Initial cost • Lifespan • Maintenance • Constructability

    17. Levee Design • Obtained soil borings & performed tests B6 B5 B3 B2 B4 B1 • Clay (CH), silt (MH), and sand (SW) present • Suitable for levee

    18. Levee Design (cont.) Lagoon Expansion Filter Facility

    19. Levee Design (cont.) • Levee cross sections

    20. Seepage Analysis • Used SefDam to calculate seepage Elev. 692’ Elev. 690’ 13’ • Total seepage is 0.0244 ft3/day

    21. Slope Stability

    22. Slope Stability (cont.) • XSTABL utilized to analyze slope stability • Eroding slope improved by Greencastle • Additional load from levee analyzed • Additional load does not cause failure

    23. Security • Fencing, lighting, and cameras investigated • Lighting and cameras may be added in future

    24. Security (cont.) Filter Facility

    25. Cost • R.S. Means Manual used to estimate costs • Levee • $71,500 • Security • $24,000 • Total cost • $95,500

    26. Conclusion • Flood levels warrant need for flood protection • Levee chosen as protection option • Seepage and slope stability not a problem • Fencing with barbed wire chosen for security • Cameras and lighting may be added • Total cost of $95,500 • Levee - $71,500 • Security - $24,000
